While symptoms can vary there are a few consistent indications.
• Belly button pain-the first symptom is traditionally centrally located around the navel. The pain will begin as a slight ache and become more severe over time.
• The pain moves-as the disease progresses the pain will move toward the lower right portion of the abdomen.
• Vague symptoms-while vomiting, fever, diarrhea and nausea can be symptomatic of several different illnesses, in conjunction with acute abdominal pain, it is likely to be appendicitis.
• Increased pain when coughing or walking-the patient has a distinct desire to stay very still.
